Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hong Lei's Remarks on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's Comments on Japan's Historical Issues


Q: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon made comments the other day on Japan's historical issues, saying that "Japanese political leaders need to examine themselves in depth", and develop a correct perception of history so as to win the respect and trust of other countries. What is China's comment?

A:We have noted the relevant report and highly commended the comment. To uphold historical justice and to make Japan face up to and reflect on its history of invasion is the common aspiration of the international community. Japan should take a correct attitude, make good on its statement and commitment on historical issues, respect the feeling of people from the victimized countries and take concrete actions to win the trust of Asian neighbours and the international community.
